Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

Not necessarily in 2008, but her results indoors have always fascinated me immensely.

2003:
Leipzig 1R - l. to Hantuchova
Moscow 2R - l. to Smashnova
W/L: 1-2

2004:
Filderstadt SF - l. to Mauresmo
Moscow QF - l. to Dementieva
YEC RR - l. to Sharapova/Mauresmo
W/L: 4-4

2005:
Tokyo SF - l. to Davenport
Moscow QF - l. to Schiavone
Zurich 1R - l. to Dechy
W/L: 4-3

2006:
Stuttgart SF - l. to Petrova
Moscow 2R - l. to Zvonareva
Zurich SF - l. to Hantuchova
YEC RR - l. to Clijsters/Sharapova
W/L: 5-5

2007:
Paris [i] QF - l. to Safarova
Stuttgart SF - l. to Golovin
Moscow SF - l. to S. Williams
Zurich QF - l. to Schiavone
YEC RR - l. to Ivanovic/Sharapova/Hantuchova
W/L: 6-7

2008:
Stuttgart 1R - l. to Schnyder
Moscow QF - l. to Safina
W/L: 2-2

W/L: 22-23


She's got six semifinals to her name indoors, three in Germany and one in Tokyo/Zurich/Moscow. She even has a couple good scalps indoors, namely Serena Williams in Stuttgart last year and arguably Elena Dementieva in Madrid two years ago. She beat Hingis as well in Zurich.

But it's not a great record she's got up there. Will she do it (eventually)?

Re: Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

she's really unimpressive indoors. Don't know why though.. her match against Serena was very good last year, she lost to her next week though

Re: Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

You would think she had reached one by now but she hasen't and there's nothing to really suggest she will. Indoor tournaments are the hardest to make finals in because the draws are always so small so you have to play well and beat top players repeatedly to get there. There's no room for a lapse, which Sveta has been prone to.

Re: Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

It is hard to predict in current state of Svetlana's affairs; she has to put her career back together which she is fully capable of. If in fact she will do it I think she will have success indoor as well.

She'll definitely reach an indoors final at some point of her career but I won't guarantee she'd win the final.

She should do - thats if there is an indoor tournament she can play thanks to the decimation of the indoor circuit!

She played amazing vs Serena at Stuttgart QF. Totally outpowered, outhit and out thought her to the point where she won 14 points in a row.

Re: Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

Kuznetsova should do it eventually. She has the ability to shorten points and hit big shots when she wants to Sometimes she plays defensively, but she did play nice and aggressively against Serena last year.

The only thing is that especially indoors, her backhand wing can really be attacked by the big hitters.

I was hoping someone would notice this. I'll good rep you promptly when this post is done.

Sveta's best chance ( ) is this year to reach an indoor final. After this year, it's pretty much only going to be in Paris, Moscow, Belgrade, or Zurich where she has a chance. And that's not much of a wingspan.

Usually I see people mention that her topspin is rendered fairly useless indoors. I wonder how true that holds?

Re: Will Svetlana Kuznetsova reach an indoor final in her career?

I hope she will, I still remember her great match against Serena last year, She was really close that tournament, I doubt she will reach an indoor final this year, but she will definitely do it in the next 2 years
